Daniel Radcliffe and girlfriend Erin Darke met while filming a NSFW scene together
Some couples have a sweet meet-cute. But you could say Daniel Radcliffe and his girlfriend had a meet-different.
On the latest episode of People TV’s Couch Surfing, Radcliffe, who’s currently starring in the TBS comedy Miracle Workers, talks about the NSFW scene in which he met his now-girlfriend Erin Darke; in 2013’s Kill Your Darlings, her character performs oral sex on his character, the poet Allen Ginsberg, in a library.
“It’ll be a hell of a story to tell our kids one day because of what our characters do with each other,” laughs Radcliffe.
Beyond that, though, Radcliffe is all smiles as he relates the overall parallels of their on- and off-screen relationships.
“Our characters are meeting and flirting with each other, so there is this kind of sweet record of us just meeting for the first time and flirting,” Radcliffe tells host Lola Ogunnaike.
